“(Mystery Man) opens the album with a snarling howl of feedback which tips over into a pell-mell rush of riffing guitar and wailing blues-harp, and things never let up from that point. Blue Collar Jane, the single about a girl who never wears her hair up ‘cos she’s always dressing down, continues in similarly taut, edgy vein, its impact brutal. (The album is produced by Chris Thomas, who rendered the Sex Pistols with such surly power, so the sound of Snapshot comes at you like a tiger.)
It’s one dizzying burst of energy after another: She’s So Fine bursts in like a car careering out of control, while the hurtling momentum of their cover of Bo Diddley’s You Can’t Judge a Book By the Cover is punctuated with tiny little guitar fills that are like sonic exclamation marks, just one element of guitarist Josh McClorey’s arsenal of techniques. On I Can Tell, he emulates the choppy, bitten-off rhythm style of the Feelgoods’ Wilko Johnson, while the calm fluidity of his work on the slower blues Angel Eyes brings to mind Peter Green.” The Independent

Under 18’s only when accompanied by an adult.
